Recent Events

A Feast for Crows

The dwarf used to serve at a holy house near Maidenpool, but northmen burned them out. They rebuilt as best they could, but sellswords came, took their pigs, burned them out and killed the brothers. He managed to survive by squeezing in the hollow of a log, hiding until the sellswords left. Afterwards, he buried his brothers, dug up a few coins the elder brother had hid, and set off by himself. He went to Maidenpool, thinking he might find a ship to take him to King's Landing. There he glimpsed a fool down by the docks and then later at the Stinking Goose.[1]

The pious dwarf makes Brienne of Tarth's acquaintance in the common room of the Seven Swords in Duskendale. She tells him that she is looking for her sister (actually Sansa Stark), who might be accompanied by a fool (Dontos Hollard). The dwarf tells Brienne that he had seen a fool at Maidenpool, and overheard Dick Crabb boasting that he had fooled a fool and had the gold to prove it. After reassuring Brienne and finishing a bowl of crab stew bought by her, the dwarf heads for King's Landing.[1] Brienne has Nimble Dick escort her to the Whispers, where she learns the fool observed by the dwarf is actually Shagwell, not Dontos.[2]

Sometime afterwards, three men present Queen Regent Cersei Lannister with a dwarf's head, grey-green and crawling with maggots. Cersei points out that the head has a bulbous nose, whereas Tyrion Lannister has no nose. One of the three men says that the dwarf told them he was a sparrow. The beheaded dwarf may be the same dwarf that Brienne encountered.[3]
